Event info

Leeds Tidal and the Economic Justice Project would like to invite you to a day of free workshops that will give you strategies for how we can address injustices together, and practical skills that will help us be heard and achieve change.

Come through for a day of free workshops, conversations and connecting with others, to better understand key issues of 2017 including : the impact of cuts and austerity, racism in Leeds, rubbish jobs, the gig economy, and refugee rights.

Years of austerity have meant more people competing for resources, while the government and media continue to find ways to blame marginalised people for problems in our society. As these divisions grow and become cemented we are less likely to work together, even though we have ‘more in common’ than many of us think. This division will make it harder to defend what’s left. It’s time to re-connect and build a collective response to the injustices around us!

Workshops include: 11.30-12.30 Exploring the impacts of austerity on: Welfare & Services/ Communities of Colour/ Workers & Jobs. 1.30-3.00 Strategies for: Fighting the cuts with Direct Action & Media/ Racial Justice/ Workplace Power/ A Social Strike. 3.10-4.40 Training for Change: Power Mapping and building an alliance for change/ How to use the Media to get your message out/ How to be a Trans Ally

The event, food and refreshments provided are FREE. Venue is wheelchair accessible. Travel and childcare bursaries available. Please register and sign up to workshops in advance using this form.
